100% agree + one of the great advantages of Python is that the
batteries actually are included and we are not forcing users to
download one of twenty competing unstable versions somewhere on
GitHub (I won't name any competing languages here).
Also, I don't see a problem with having one more mature, slower
version of library in the standard library, while the more alive
version is still being developed from time to time rebasing the
stdlib version (I thought, unittest was one such example.)
Also, considering requests, I am still dreaming about somebody
writing some requests-like API over the standard library.

My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.
